Ancient mystique meets reverence and jubilation in the absorbing customs of Easter in the Cyclades
A cluster of islands smack in the heart of the Aegean, the Cyclades are a soul-stirring destination imbued with pristine natural beauty and the characteristically zestful, Dionysian spirit. They are named after the word “kyklos”, meaning “circle” in Greek, as they form an imaginary circle at the centre of which lies Delos: The sacred island of antiquity and birthplace of divine twins Artemis and Apollo.

Mykonos is famous for many things: Its paradisiacal beaches. Its iconic Town. Its hedonistic lifestyle. Its dusk to dawn parties. Its misbehaving celebrities. Its dramatic sunsets. There is actually a whole ritual associated with the latter. And it has been taking place every afternoon ever since this pristinely beautiful, whitewashed island was discovered by the bon vivants of the ’60s.
Cocktails at dusk, this magical hour when the burning circle makes its spectacular dive into the deep blue Aegean waters, is a time-honoured Mykonian tradition. A favourite pastime even the most ardent beach bums can’t resist, even if this means that they have to leave their seaside fun to get ready.

“It takes a lifetime for someone to discover Greece, but it only takes an instant to fall in love with her”, Henry Miller wrote. The great American author must have been enamored with the history and culture of the place; its traditions, landscapes, sights, smells, and people. All these uniquely Greek traits; which when combined together are especially conducive to a rising global trend: Seeking health care away from home; in those select, privileged locations that amalgamate pristine environments and salubrious lifestyles, with cutting edge medical facilities, highly advanced treatments, and competitive rates. Like the island of the winds. Indeed medical tourism in Mykonos is on the rise and it is here to stay!

Gone are the days when the beautiful people, the A-listers, and the jet setters would cheerfully -and most importantly carefreely- mingle in hordes, on the beach, or the bar. 2020 demands social distancing-ie. more privacy and seclusion.
